EXCLUSIVE:

Only here on GolfWRX will we see the inside scoop of what is going on with the gear out there. Another example of unique versions of TaylorMade drivers tuned for either launch, feel/sound or looks for the TMag staffers.

Here is the original post…

Hey guys, I finally got a chance to snap some comparison pictures of the R1 v1 (version 1) and R1 v2 (version 2). From what I have been told the R1 v2 is 420cc.

The v2 is also significantly lighter than the v1. The tour heads (without tip) weight around 195g versus 205g for a retail head, making them much more practical for builds. I also found out there is three lofts on tour, 8.5, 9.5, and 10.5.

    Deaus7,

    Agreed, total travesty. They aren’t the only ones though. Almost every company out there designs clubs for the Game Improvement set (Miura and some others excluded). Problem is, how are they supposed to improve when their irons have a full shaft offset? Or their driver is 2-4 degrees shut? I’m all for forgiveness, but at some point people are going to have to learn how to hit shots and play other than swing and pray.

    What a Travesty, TMAG is literally Ruining the golf equipment industry, They started with all white which some can live with, but now they are starting to infect other companies as well, Tour pros play them cause they get paid too, What clubs are always in the bag up until they get sponsored?? very very rairly TMAG, unless its a college player who also gets free stuff. There is alot of evidence out there that equipment has actually gotten worse and more ill-fitted. Talk to Tom Wishon.
